Capital in the Twenty-First Century

    By Thomas Piketty
What are the grand dynamics that drive the accumulation and distribution of capital? Questions about the long-term evolution of inequality, the concentration of wealth, and the prospects for economic growth lie at the heart of political economy. But satisfactory answers have been hard to find for lack of adequate data and clear guiding theories. In this title, Thomas Piketty analyzes a unique collection of data from twenty countries, ranging as far back as the 18th century, to uncover key economic and social patterns."
    ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Thomas Piketty is Professor at the Paris School of Economics.

    REVIEW QUOTES

This book is not only the definitive account of the historical evolution of inequality in advanced economies, it is also a magisterial treatise on capitalism s inherent dynamics. Piketty ends his book with a ringing call for the global taxation of capital. Whether or not you agree with him on the solution, this book presents a stark challenge for those who would like to save capitalism from itself.--Dani Rodrik, Institute for Advanced Study"
